Abstract

To identify the metabolic syndrome (MetS) among inmates of a ‘home for aged’ using IDF 2005 criteria. 100 subjects from inmates of a ‘home for aged’ studied for the identification of metabolic syndrome using International Diabetes Federation (IDF) 2005 criteria. Presence of waist circumference (WC) (Men ≥90cm, Women ≥80 cm) plus any two of the following four factors; triglycerides (TG) >150mg/dl (1.7mmol/l),(II) HDL-Cholesterol (HDL-C) < 40 mg/dl(1.0mmol/l) for men, < 50 mg/dl(1.3mmol/l) for women, fasting plasma glucose (FPG) ≥100mg/dl (6.1mmol/l) and blood pressure (BP) ≥130/85mm of Hg. Indicated the MetS. MetS was present in 57.0%. WC was common component, TG was increased in 71.9%, low HDL-C present in 86.0%, raised FPG present in 66.7% and hypertension in 45.6%. MetS was more common in older women than in men (63.6% vs. 48.8%) and decreased HDL-C is core components of the MetS in this population. High calorie diet and sedentary life style may be contributing factors of MetS in this population. MetS is common in elderly subjects. It is age-related, and is more common in elderly women.
